Anyone on here?

I have just been looking at this eBay listing. Does it belong to anyone on here?

I don't want to trigger a bidding frenzy but I do suggest the description is worth a read and would respectfully draw your attention to the 'front seat' and to the reinforcement of the transom visible in the images.

It also mentions a 'home grown trailer'.

The seat in front of the console is my favourite

The front stool generated a smile - but the "transom reinforcement" looks remarkably like a couple of lengths of wood from a pallet and the damage that the trailer bunks would do to the hull on a bumpy road don't bear thinking about...

I'm not sure that UPVc guttering is marine grade either!

Speaking of 'home grown trailers' do the pictures in this thread seem familiar?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..........I've only just started to calm down.

After briefly skimming over some of his reply's from the link you posted, this particular one made me chuckle...

"but when I called to tell the seller he was mistaken and that his boat was actually a Marina 16 and not an Arran 17, he didn't take it very kindly...He said I didn't know anything and then he became quite rude."

Followed by....

"...I rang Arran boats to ask if they had ever made an Arran 17 and was supprised to hear that they had done in the past but not for a long time now...So it seems the seller could have been correct!"
